Lush Vintage 50s Snap Dragon Print Dress and Bolero -
Perfectly proportioned and sweetly styled, this cotton dress is an easy transition piece. It moves from Spring to Summer and late Summer to Fall with ease.
We like to think of it as the perfect capper to a gorgeous summer soaked in sun and bursting with annuals. Did you plant snap dragons this year? If not, you can continue to watch them bloom while wearing this cotton dress. It's got a watercolor style print that's in lush shades of orange, peachy-pinks, golds and greens. Throw on a pair of tights (olive colored, perhaps) and you're ready for the delicious days of Indian Summer.
This carries the Jerry Gilden of New York label. This company was one of the top five producers of women's wear in the '50s. The dress has a fitted scoop neck bodice, a gathered full skirt and an adorable matched bolero jacket bound in olive green. There's a side zip closure.
Rich and lush, this snap dragon dress is a snap to wear. Just pull it on and feel the warmth of the season.
